Chris Jericho is AEW World Champion, but he’s not an untouchable heel He realizes that AEW needs to build big stars in order to be successful and he’s using his position to put over as many stars as possible.
While speaking to Sports Illustrated, Chris Jericho explained his mission in All Elite Wrestling. The goal is to build new stars to sustain AEW’s future. There are a lot of people on the roster and they’re just getting started.
“Guys like MJF, Darby Allin and Scorpio Sky have been in main event matches. We’ve made those guys into stars very quickly. It’s only been nine weeks of TV, so imagine where we’ll be after nine months?
“One of my mission statements in AEW is to build new talent,” said Jericho. “People complain, ‘We don’t have any idea who this people are!’ It’s only been nine weeks, and we’re focusing on one person every couple of weeks. Building new stars will make this promotion successful. This past week gave Sammy Guevara some spotlight, as well as Ortiz, Santana, and SCU.”
Chris Jericho will remain AEW World Champion as long as he needs to be. AEW has centered their top tier storylines around Le Champion and his Inner Circle. This also allows the possibility to make a lot of people look really good on national television in the process.
